Queens Of The Stone Age
The Queens of the Stone Age was introduced to the general public as a band through the last split EP released by the band Kyuss in 1997. This release tied up the loose ends of Kyuss and officially announced the arrival of the new band, Queens.. Their self-titled debut album came out in 1997, in which both guitar and bass duties were handled by Homme. Following the release of this album, the group embarked on their first official tour as the Queens of the Stone Age. Side by side Homme also kept putting together a series of albums for Man’s Ruin, an indie label. These featured Homme’s contributions with a revolving lineup of one-mind musicians. This not only allowed greater exposure for the Queens but also paved the way for the newly formed band to experiment with new forms of music.
The band’s second album was released in 2000,. Titled ‘R’, (as in Rated R), the album featured numerous renowned musicians, including Dave Catching, Gene Trautmann, Rob Halford and Chris Goss among many others. This sophomore album got even more acclaim then the Queen’s debut effort and opened doors for the band to perform with the Foo Fighters, Hole and The Smashing Pumpkins. The Queens also got an opportunity to perform at Ozzfest that year.

It debuted at the top of the charts and reached gold status within one year of its release.

It featured eleven multi-instrumentalists and produced an intriguing mix of music that took the fans by surprise and established the band as an unpredictably fascinating entity in terms of their music.
The current lineup of the rock band includes vocalist Josh Humme, the founding member off the group, guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen, bassist Michael Shuman, drummer Jon Theodore and keyboardist Dean Fertita.
